James Harber – Francis Tuttle Technology Center
THEN: A country kid with five siblings, home-schooled by his mother, with a tight budget and no idea what he wanted to do after high school. A Web design and development program at Francis Tuttle Technology Center quickly became his passion, providing him with
- Skills to start his own company.
- Scholarship money through the National Technical Honor Society to pay for tuition and books at the University of Central Oklahoma.
- Computer experience, career guidance and a chance to test drive a career.
NOW: James left UCO with one year of college remaining because his business was thriving. A self-employed graphic artist, James is owner and creative director of Studio FJ. His clients include well-known Oklahoma companies and nonprofits, as well as national businesses such as AT&T Wireless and Hilton Hotels.
